Quote: "Hi Steve and Mary, Another one for you. The Fugly Stick was designed and built during Melbourne's 5th lockdown and test flown in the few weeks before the 6th lockdown - such strange times we live in!
I was looking for a funfly style model to suit an Irvine 36 I had acquired. None of the full blown funfly models appealed as they were all rather fragile - with dire warnings not to fly at full speed lest they flutter and self-destruct. This required far more skill and discipline than I possess and I knew sooner or later I would lose it.
So was born the Fugly Stick, a kind of funfly version of the classic Ugly Stick (oz5175). It has turned out to be exactly as I wanted. The super thick wing works at very low speeds and stops it gaining too much speed even heading straight down. The large control surfaces make tight maneuvers easy without being twitchy, the tapered thickness ailerons are very rigid and have shown no signs of flutter at any speed.
I like it! (if I do say so myself). I hope others might also."

User commentsGreat for plane! This plane is great! It flies well, was easy to build, looks great, and is a really good plane overall I stuck to the plans for the most part, but I did have to make some modifications, such as adding servo covers, a carbon wing tube, and lengthening the nose. Overall, I could reccomend this plane to any pilot who wants an easy build and an amazing plane.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
